Meal Plan 26th September - 2nd October

Meal Plan

Another week has whizzed by and it's been a bit stressful at times thanks to lost school bags, clubs over running, and a teething 18 month old.....but we got there in the end and I suppose I should be grateful that the double sleepover my eldest two had on Friday passed without incident. I did a lot of therapeutic baking this weekend, some of which I'll be blogging soon. There were cheese and ham pinwheels, an apple crumble and custard loaf cake (absolutely amazing - I've put on half a stone just looking at it), standard Saturday morning fairy cakes, choc chip cookies and some mini quiches. Unfortunately my lot don't do moderation so there's hardly any left for lunchboxes. They must think they're not going to get fed again until next weekend!

I have a feeling the broad bean risotto on Tuesday might go down like a lead balloon with the kids and hubby (I have emergency fish fingers) but I love broad beans so tough luck. If emergency fish fingers are required it might mean I'm eating leftover broad bean risotto for the rest of the week. I can think of worse things.

I hope everyone has a stress free week!

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
